I should probably despise the English but omg, I love the English accent.
(Not that there's actually such a thing but let's not bother too much with the specifics, ok?) I love English novelists like Julian Barnes.
I love London.
"But certain interests of particular people are so important that it would be wrong - morally wrong - for the community to sacrifice those interests just to secure an overall benefit. Political rights mark off and protect these particularly important interests. A political right, we may say, is a trump over the kind of trade-off argument that normally justifies political action." - Ronald Dworkin (RIP)
